Shelby County District Attorney General Anti-Trespass Program

One of the main challenges to overcome in addressing crime in apartment communities is the problem of unauthorized persons coming onto the property and causing trouble. The Shelby County District Attorney’s Office has instituted an innovative and very successful Anti-Trespass Program. On participating properties, police and security guards are authorized to arrest any individual who is on the property who is not a lawful resident or invited guest. Persons arrested under this program may be charged with criminal trespass.

Safeways requires all Safeways Certification candidates to participate in the Shelby County District Attorney’s Anti-Trespass Program.
